Smoked Green Beans are a simple side dish that are perfect to make at the same time as chicken or pork.
Basically a complete meal all made on the smoker.
I made these green beans along with Smoked BBQ Chicken Thighs, same time and same temperature 🙂
Bringing both dishes extra flavor and bonus points for making your life a little easier doing all at once.
How to Make Smoked Green Beans
The first step is trimming a pound of fresh green beans.
Then cut them in half, or for the longer beans into thirds.
And place them in a cast iron skillet or foil pan.
Then add a small, finely diced onion.
And 6 tablespoons butter, garlic, seasoning blend of choice, 1/4 cup water, kosher salt, and pepper.
I am using a cajun seasoning blend, but a BBQ seasoning or Old Bay would work great too.
Set the smoker or pellet grill to 250 degrees.
And set the pan on the grill grate for 2 1/2 to 3 hours.
This happened to be the same time and temperature as the chicken thighs 🙂
Pretty nice to set a complete dinner on the smoker and know it will be ready at the same time.
Smoked Green Beans are a definite do again very soon, and all the kids ate their veggies with no complaints 🙂
I may play around with different flavors to add to this simple side dish.
I mean, bacon is never a bad thing to add or maybe even teriyaki green beans?!
Stay tuned, my friends, for more variations on these 😉
